1.4 Engaging City Decision Makers

We can Make a Difference

People from all walks of life can influence city government
on how decisions and policies are made.

We can ask for economic equality and security, including child care,
affordable and safe housing, affordable transit, income security.
We need real measures to better measure the quality of lifeand
wellbeing for everyone.

There are success stories of people in Ottawa speaking up
and being heard by City staff and politicians. And, this
resulted in real change. We can build on these experiences
and share with our communities what we’ve learned.


Together we can create an inclusive city for everyone.
We have both a right and responsibility to do so.
